Are you talking about the 'store/encryptionKey.sql' test? If so, this is 
DERBY-788, and the reasons for why it fails on Solaris10 have been 
tracked down. Read the comments in Jira for details.

This test only fails on Solaris10 with Java 1.5 (or actually a specific 
security provider - 'SunPCKS11-Solaris').
Should this test be removed as well?
If so, is there a way to make it not run based on a specific combination 
of OS and JVM (and/or security provider)?
